    If we just need to rent swim fins on Castaway Cay for snorkeling, what is the charge. Bringing our own masks and snorkels.

    Hi Claudia!

    Welcome aboard the Disney Parks Moms Panel! If you're asking about snorkeling on Castaway Cay, you must be getting ready to set sail on a Disney Cruise! Disney's private island, Castaway Cay, is my idea of paradise. One of my favorite things to do on the island is snorkel! The crystal blue water makes viewing all the fish "under the sea" so easy!

    Bringing your own snorkel gear is a great idea! Unfortunately, you aren't able to rent just the flippers on Castaway Cay. If you'd like to use fins along with your snorkeling gear from home, you will need to rent all the snorkel equipment included in the Snorkel Lagoon Equipment Rentals. The current charge to rent snorkel equipment is $32.00 per person (ages 10 and up) and $16.00 per person (ages 5 to 9). With that being said, flippers are optional so you may absolutely snorkel with your masks and snorkels from home, without wearing flippers! All snorkelers in your party will need to wear an inflatable life vest while snorkeling. You can pick up a yellow vest, free of charge, at Gil's Fins and Boats or Flippers and Floats before heading into the snorkeling lagoon located at Castaway Family Beach. Keep an eye out for hidden treasures while you explore all the wonders in the lagoon!

    Claudia, I hope you have an incredible time on Castaway Cay! If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to visit us again!
